Welcome to the website of KB4GKI and the .82 Repeater Group!
KB4GKI is Jimmy Holbrook - he was first licensed in 1983 as a novice, and was able to upgrade to extra in March of 2020. He really enjoyed the digital modes of FT-4 and FT-8, and always used the QRZ log book for all of his contacts on the digital modes.
He was often found on the WB4PZA repeater (the .82 repeater) in Wilkesboro.
On September 23, 2021 Jimmy lost his battle with the COVID-19 virus and became a Silent Key. One of his wishes was to maintain his website as an impromtu information source for his beloved .82 repeater group. With the assistance from one of his best friends, AB1JU, we are keeping this wish fufilled.
Spring Cookout / Picnic!
The .82 repeater group is holding a Spring Cookout / Picnic on April 9th!
Come one, come all! Mark your calendars!!
The cookout will be held at Stone Mountain State Park - come to the Dogwood shelter, with lunch around noon.
Contact Butch, KM4KWN on the .82 repeater or use the Contact Us form for more information!
We'll be needing some styrofoam bowls & plates, disposable utensils, some cups and of course, desserts!
(A side dish or two couldn't hurt either!)
